Outline

This system avoids deer-train collisions. It adopts animal prevention nets - to limit the entry pathways (trails) into a railway track, and, ultrasonic waves - to control deers entering. When trains are in operation, the system emits ultrasonic waves so as to deter such wildlife from approaching the track. When trains are not in service, the ultrasonic wave emission stops, thus, the deers may go into and cross over the track freely and safely.
